Step 1: Prepare For Removal
Prepare a bowl with warm water, liquid soap and cuticle oil.
Pro Tip: Add cuticle oil around nails.
Step 2: Soak Nails
Place your fingers in the water and let your nails soak for 15-20 minutes.
Pro Tip: To loosen the adhesive, you can try rocking the nails back and forth while they’re submerged on rub liquid soap over them to create separation between the adhesion and the nail plate. Both may help loosen the adhesive.
Step 3: Loosen Nails
After 15-20 minutes, remove your hands from the water and pat dry. Carefully use the pointed end of the wooden cuticle pusher to get between the press on and your nail plate. A rolling back and forth motion will help loosen them.
Pro Tip: Take your time. Even if the nails seem loose, do not pull them off too quickly. This can result in damage to your nails. Any excess adhesive can be removed with 100% acetone on the nail plate.
Step 4: Remove Nail Glue or Adhesive
Use the flat end of a wooden cuticle pusher to remove any remaining adhesive (nail glue or tab) from the nail plate.
Pro Tip: Remember your nails are reusable! If you prefer nail glue, we would suggest purchasing an inexpensive electric nail file so you can gently buff away any built up glue on the back of the tip to clean them up before you reuse them.
Step 5: Buff Nails
Using a buffer block to gently buff your nail.
Step 6: Shape Nails
Shape your natural nail with a nail file, rounding the edges of your nail to prevent breaking.
Disclaimer: Acetone can dry your skin. We suggest washing your hands and nails with warm soapy water thoroughly, then dry completely. Apply Barely Blush Cuticle Oil to nails and cuticles and massage gently into each nail and the skin surrounding it.
